Even better than the previous ones. I’ve waited two years for this new novel and I’m devouring it. The descriptions of Vaucluse Mountain remind me of my childhood.
I really liked the intrigue in this novel, the complicity of the characters, their story and their nature. Good historical immersion.
I never get tired of it. The 2 volumes of this last novel which is at the same time historical, detective and adventure book. As in the previous novels of Mr Bontoux, we are transported in the places and we live with the characters and we learn so much in the process. Like many others I hope that a new book is in preparation.
As always Thierry Bontoux has written a fascinating, well-documented book.
Most of the characters are plausible but I had a little difficulty to accept the role given to the young woman.
It is hard to believe that the papal inquisition would use a woman, a Moorish one at that, to fight against heretics in the macho, xenophobic and gullible medieval world.
